Women who wear makeup are seen as more attractive, likeable, trustworthy and competent than those who don’t, but, the more makeup is applied, the less positively women are rated.
Could it be the case that wearing some makeup communicates to others that you feel positively about yourself?
Do they see that you feel worthy of the extra effort to make yourself look more vibrant?
People enjoy looking at you because you are, indeed, more attractive. People are more attracted to things that are pretty and the advertising industry relies on that attraction to sell a multitude of products.
Apparently, less is more when it comes to wearing makeup.
Mom, consult with a makeup artist in advance and set the rules about how you what the results to look. "A little of this, but never that and under no circumstances is XXXX allowed." Take your daughter for a professional session.
By doing this, you'll endorse her interests and give her the education she needs to look her best.
You'll reduce the conflicts and increase the trust factor! Win-win!!
